Shortening URL string to only include domain name

Hi All,

I’m new to using the CSL editor, and I’m hoping to include shortened URLS, e.g. “https://website.org” in the footnote citation, whereas I want to use the full URL in the bibliography. I noted that the variable “URL” helpfully has a form “short”, however when I use it with various URLs it doesn’t seem to do any shortening at all. Are implicit usage requirements to get it to work? Or any ideas why it’s not shortening the URLs?

Thanks!

Hi,

I don’t think there’s a way to specify the short form of a URL in the input data.
